Artelia mobilises for health and safety
Artelia mobilised to organise its second Safety Week from 17 to 21 March, this year’s slogan being “I act for Health & Safety”.
The week enabled nearly 1500 employees and 300 partners to reflect on the various themes proposed. Over 100 events took place at all the group and project sites worldwide.
There were many highlights, such as a presentation by a chief fire officer and numerous workshops on the theme of workstation ergonomics by a partner consultant.
Several ideas emerged from these various events. They will be brought together in a coherent, strategic action plan for the group that will be closely monitored by general management and the operational managers. The main aim of this plan is to improve our procedures, best practices and resources in order to make health and safety even more a part of our corporate safety culture.
Meanwhile, we are already getting ready for Artelia’s third Safety Week. See you in 2015!

While the Costa Concordia was grounded...
As social networks crucify the captain of the Costa Concordia, questions must be asked about the management of navigational safety on board large ships. It may be assumed that systems tend to migrate towards states of higher risk, especially under the effect of the crew’s complacency induced by the illusion of mastering the unexpected, thus leading to a situation of unrecognised high risk. Should we then have to look at something like the "bridge team workplace" on large ships? Artelia’s answer is quite definitely YES.
... Port Revel was building the “VOYAGER”
This new model of a large podded cruise ship over 1000 feet (300 m) long transporting over 5000 people will enable masters and officers to train in shiphandling under various emergency conditions that are unlikely but always possible.

17-21 March 2014 | Safety Week at Artelia
Artelia’s 2nd Safety Week will take place from 17 to 21 March 2014.
The main objective of the group’s Safety Week is to encourage all managers to strengthen their commitment in relation to safety and all employees to integrate safety into their daily lives, for themselves and for those around them, whether in a professional or personal context, starting with the construction companies working on the sites where Artelia operates around the world.
We would like to encourage our teams to "take the time to understand how our actions and behaviour can affect the safety of others". This event is part of Artelia’s commitment to develop the group’s safety culture in order to reach its “Go for Zero” objective.
Various initiatives, including information, workshop and discussion sessions, are being launched at all Artelia sites worldwide.
I act for Health & Safety is this year’s leitmotiv. Thanks to the efforts of all we can achieve our “Go for Zero” objective!

Artelia acquires QUADRIC, consolidating its range of infrastructure engineering services
In December 2013 the Artelia group acquired Quadric, a company based near Lyon, specialising in the field of civil engineering structures (bridges, viaducts, etc.).
After acquiring the SECOA design office last September, Artelia, a leading construction engineering group on French and international markets, is thus continuing to consolidate its range of infrastructure engineering services in particular to motorway companies, the French national railway company (SNCF), public transportation authorities and public-sector project owners (the French State, regional councils and urban area authorities).
This merger hence bolsters Artelia’s activities in the field of transportation-related civil engineering structures (roads and railways) by adding further expertise in the assessment, maintenance and repairing of bridges, viaducts and tunnels.
Artelia is now one of France’s leading specialists in civil engineering structures.
